The first book published exclusively on fire trucks produced by the Pirsch Company of Kenosha, WI. Best known for the invention of the world's first all-powered aerial ladder, the Pirsch Company also produced a variety of fire trucks. From hand-drawn ladder wagons in the 1800s to modern day diesel powered pumpers and aerial ladders. The factory produced thousands of trucks for fire departments, military and private fire brigades all over the world. See some of Pirsch's unique apparatus including: a pumper built to travel on railroad tracks; and a huge smoke ejector built on a custom built chassis. Factory photos show the different types of fire equipment and trucks produced on both custom and commercial chassis.
